Different variations of Wolf Ears. From left to right are the Birthday, Snowland, and Standard Wolf Ears.

Wolf Ears are an item that can be found at every Great Wolf Lodge. They are the Lodge's signature item and come in many varieties. They are a headband that guests can put on their heads. Guests get as many Wolf Ears as the amount of guests they booked for. They are made of a soft cotton exterior and a plastic interior. They were introduced in 2010 originally as a promotional item given to guests who ate at one of the lodge's restaurants.
